What is Sevikar?

Sevikar tablets are a medicine used for treating high blood pressure. They belong to a group of medicines called calcium antagonists. In addition to lifestyle adjustments, a medication like Sevikar may be taken regularly by patients to keep their blood pressure in check and avoid potential serious ailments such as a heart attack, blood clots or a stroke.

How does Sevikar work?

This medication contains two substances which are called olmesartan medoxomil and amlodipine. Some treatments for high blood pressure may feature one of these substances, but Sevikar is prescribed when both are required to keep your blood pressure in check. The olmesartan medoxomil relaxes the blood vessels in the body, allowing blood to pass through them easier. An improved blood supply to the heart means more oxygen can be received.

Amlodipine is classed as a calcium channel blocker, meaning it stops calcium from moving into the blood vessel wall and potentially tightening the vessels. This also aids in improving blood flow through the body.

How do I take Sevikar?

The recommended dose when using this medication is one tablet per day. The tablets should preferably be taken at around the same time each day. The tablets should not be chewed and should instead be swallowed whole with some fluid (like a glass of water). The tablets can be taken with or without food but avoid taking them with grapefruit juice.

What are the side effects of Sevikar?

Like with all medicines, it is possible to experience side effects from taking Sevikar, though not everyone gets them. The most common side effects are typically mild and do not last for a while, so putting a stop to treatment won’t be required. The most common side effects possible include the following:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Swelling of ankles, feet, legs, hands or arms
  • Tiredness

Other side effects that are possible are rarely reported, but some of them can be serious and you should seek medical help right away if they occur. In rare cases, an allergic reaction may be caused by Sevikar which will require immediate action. Signs that an allergic reaction is occurring include swelling of the face or mouth and a severe rash.

Can I take Sevikar?

Before you start using Sevikar, you should check that there aren’t any health-related circumstances that could prohibit you from using this medication safely. You should not take these tablets if any of the following apply:

  • You’re more than 3 months pregnant or currently breast-feeding. If you have been pregnant for less than 3 months, speak to your doctor about this anyway, as they may still recommend avoiding Sevikar as a precaution.
  • You have diabetes or impaired kidney function and you are being treated with a blood pressure-lowering medicine containing aliskiren
  • You have severe liver problems
  • Your bile secretion is impaired or drainage of bile from the gallbladder is blocked
  • You have very low blood pressure
  • You are suffering from insufficient blood supply to your tissues. Symptoms of this issue include low blood pressure, low pulse and fast heartbeat
  • You have an issue obstructing the blood flow from your heart
  • You suffer from low heart output due to a heart attack you had in the past

You should also inform your doctor or pharmacist about other medicines you are currently taking or have recently used before you start Sevikar. It’s especially important to highlight if you have been using any of these:

  • An ACE-inhibitor (such as Enalapril or Lisinopril)
  • Aliskiren
  • Other blood pressure lowering medicines beside the two mentioned above
  • Potassium supplements, salt substitutes containing potassium, water tablets or heparin. All of these could raise the levels of potassium in your blood if used at the same time as Sevikar
  • Lithium. Taking this at the same time as Sevikar may increase the toxicity of Lithium
  • Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs). They may decrease the effect of Sevikar
  • Colesevelam hydrochloride. They may decrease the effect of Sevikar
  • Certain antacids. They may decrease the effect of Sevikar
  • Medicines for treating HIV/AIDS (such as ritonavir and nelfinavir)
  • Medicines for fungal infections (such as ketoconazole and itraconazole)
  • Diltiazem and verapamil (both used for treating heart rhythm problems and high blood pressure)
  • Rifampicin, erythromycin and clarithromycin (all antibodies used for treating tuberculosis and other infections)
  • Dantrolene
  • Simvastatine
  • Tacrolimus and cyclosporine (both used to control your body’s immune response)
  • An herbal remedy called St. John’s Wort

What if I take too much Sevikar?

If you take more of these tablets than you should or if a child accidentally swallows some, seek medical help immediately. You may experience symptoms such as dizziness and a slow or fast heartbeat due to low blood pressure.

What if I forget to take Sevikar?

If you forget to take a dose of this medicine, then skip it and take the following day’s dose at the usual time. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.
